To mark the start of Chinese New Year of the Horse on 31st January 2014, Wing Yip Director Brian Yip presented a cheque for £1,000 to RDA during a celebratory lunch at the Wing Yip Centre in Nechells on Monday (27th January). The donation will be split between the Lowlands Farm RDA and the RDA National Office. 

“Horses play a great role in providing therapy and enjoyment to people with disabilities so it seems fitting that as we celebrate the Year of the Horse we recognise the role the horse plays in people’s lives through a donation to the RDA,” explained Wing Yip Director Brian Yip.

Sal Atkinson from RDA added: “We rely heavily on businesses like Wing Yip for charitable donations and we are extremely grateful for their generosity. Being in contact with horses and riding is proven to be extremely therapeutic for people with disabilities and we see some really successful results. Donations like this enable us to continue this important work into the future and we hope that the Chinese New Year of the Horse brings us lots of luck with fundraising.”

The 15 day Chinese New Year Festival is the most important celebration in the Chinese calendar and will kick off on 31st January. Celebrations are taking place across the UK with Wing Yip hosting dragon dances and promotions across its four superstores in Birmingham, Manchester, Cricklewood and Croydon. To find out more visit
